Forty-nine FISD Students Recognized(October, 2007)

Forty-nine Frisco High School Students have been named AP Scholars by the College Board in recognition of their achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams, according to information provided by FHS this week.

The program offers students the opportunity to take college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP exams. About 18 percent of the more than 1.4 million high school students in 16,000 secondary schools worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.

The students who took the May 2007 courses and received recognition include Nicholas Ibanez and Steven Zhu, both of whom graduated in May 2007. Both earned an average grade of 4 or higher on a 5-point scale on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.

Twelve students qualified for the AP Scholar with distinction Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of  3 or higher on five or more of these exams. The students are Avinash Achaibar, Akshaya Bandaru, Daniel Barros, Chelsea Drescher, Robert “Alex” Holton, Nicholas Ibanez, Chris Johnson, Alfred Larsen, Jennifer Lim, Staci Travis, Oin Wu and Steven Zhu.
